Spicely Review and Giveaway

Published by at 2:33 pm under Contests

I have to admit that I am kind of a lazy cook. I get into a rut of making the same things over and over. One things that always inspires me to try something different is getting a new spice blend. When Spicely Organics offered to send me a set of their Backyard Barbecue spices to try, I jumped at the chance.

The Backyard Barbecue Gift Set comes with 4 different spice combinations: Barbeque, Fish Grill & Broil, Beef Burger, and Chicken Kabob. I wanted to try a couple of them, so we decided to have a grilled Surf & Turf dinner. It could not have been easier! I chose some decent quality steaks at the store and we used a couple of tablespoons of the Barbecue seasoning on them before grilling them. I bought some large sized shrimp and tossed them with the Fish Grill & Broil seasoning before wrapping them in foil and throwing them on the grill for about 10 minutes.

The family loved the whole meal! Most preferred the steak seasoning, but I think that’s just because they like steak better in general. I felt like the seasoning on the shrimp was the easiest way that I have ever prepared shrimp. I didn’t even marinate them for more than about 5 minutes and the flavor was unbelievable. I should also note that the containers contain a LOT of the spice mixtures, so you will get a lot of use out of them for the price.

In addition to the spice kits (which make GREAT gifts), you will find a whole selection of organic spices and teas at Spicely. Even though I tend to stick with a lot of basic spices, I really appreciate good cinnamon, peppercorns, and salts. Plus, get free shipping on every order!

    I LOVE this. I always get weirded out by the ingredients in spice blends. I think i’d love the BBQ or Burger option the best but any would be fantastic. 🙂
